BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Over 50 tribes and clans in northern Syria met inside the Aleppo Governorate on Saturday, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

According to the SANA report, the meeting was called “In Retaliation for the US, French and Turkish Interference in Syria.”

During the meeting, the 55 tribes and clans reasserted their support for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the federal government.

“Arab and Kurdish tribes in Aleppo stand in the same trench with the Syrian Arab Army and President Bashar al-Assad in facing the Turkish aggression and its backers, particularly the US and France,” the report stated.

A number of national Kurdish figures expressed their rejection of any attempt to divide Syria and of the foreign interference in its affairs.

For their parts, the elders and dignitaries of tribes rejected all types of aggression against Syria, affirming that the Syrians will stay united side-by-side with the Syrian Arab Army in defending the country and facing whoever tries to interfere in its affairs.

The Syrian tribes and clans also rejected the existence of any US, French or Turkish forces inside Syria.

This is the second major meeting that has been held between the tribes in northern Syria this year.

Glad to hear that: but just how many people do they represent, and what political implications & consequences does this statement transport?

Thus, as long as the tribal mindset will plague the middle-east, the region will be doomed into stupid clashes.
Such system was adapted to the Arabian desert 1400 years ago. It’s meaningless today.

What contempt!
What is you proposition?
Do you want to change them by force like the anglo-saxo use to do?
These tribes don’t detain the power, but they have influence locally because of their number.
Generally they are wise and noble people.
Most of them breeds animals, wich is necessary to feed the syrian population.

“Thus, as long as the tribal mindset will plague the middle-east, the region will be doomed into stupid clashes”.Yes i agree. This is no more evident than in the mindset of the jewish tribe who inhabit the lands of Palestine. A racist and apartheid cult which is consistently at war with its neighbours, and has never during its 2000+ year history, wherever they have ” settled ” been at peace with anyone.
Remove this tribe from the middle east and peace will break out overnight.
Problem solved !
